I Wear My Life – Jo Dee Messina

Come close, just look at me, can you see
That new England breeze blowin’ through my hair
Stare into my eyes, can’t you see the endless sky
Peakin’ through the cracks of that abandoned barn
Got my first kiss there
My victories, my broken dreams, you don’t have to look too far
Like an old pair of shoes, like a tattoo, sometimes like a scar
I wear my life, right on my sleeve
Who I am ain’t no mystery
Where I’ve been has left a mark on me
No, I’m not one to try and hide
Or keep it all locked up inside
I wear my life
I’m like an old scrapbook, not afraid to let you look
Every day’s a brand new page I can’t wait to cut and paste
This picture that I see, right now of you and me
Two people so in love even time can’t make it fade
My smiling face, gives me away, yeah everybody knows
When you feel something this real, boy, it’s bound to show
You can see right through me. I’m transparent
I don’t just live it

Ruby Jean and Billie Lee

youtube: sRnzh0nUPxw

Oh Ruby Jean, last night I dreamed I was runnin’ somewhere beyond the stars.
I called out to you, and you answered softly.
You are the children’s eyes, and I’m the days gone by.
Oh Ruby Jean, it doesn’t seem like a long, long time, since we were born again.
Into the dazzling light, uniting black and white.
You are the rich brown earth, and I’m the flowers that grow.

We’ll have children (Lua), of the Kingdom (Joshua).
They won’t be torn by war, nor will they
Kill or hate, or hesitate, to love. Justice.

Oh Billie Lee, it’s destiny that we meet again, here on this earthly plain.
I’ll see all the worlds with you, but you’ll have to help me through.
You are the straight and narrow path, and I’m the wayfayer.
Oh Billie Lee, we shall be free in the years to come, to help build the Promised Land.
We’ll go where the day springs run, forever and live as one.
He is the object of our longing, and we’re His creation.

We’ll have children (Lua), of the Kingdom (Joshua).
They won’t be torn by war, nor will they
Kill or hate, or hesitate, to love. Justice.

No More Walks in the Wood

No more walks in the wood
The trees have all been cut down
And where once they stood
Not even a wagon rut
Appears along the path
Low brush is taking over

No more walks in the wood
This is the aftermath
Of afternoons in the clover fields
Where we once made love
Then wandered home together

Where the trees arched above
Where we made our own weather
When branches were the sky
Now they are gone for good
And you, for ill, and I
Am only a passer-by

We and the trees and the way
Back from the fields of play
Lasted as long as we could
No more walks in the wood

The right to think…………….very much on trial.

Inherit the Wind is a dramatization of the famous Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925 when a biology teacher was arrested and challenged a law passed by the Tennessee State legislature making it a crime to teach anything other than the account of creation as set down in the Book of Genesis.

History repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.
This statement by Karl Marx admirably serves two functions: (1) It describes the difference between the two times the teaching of Darwin’s theories were put on trial in this country, in Tennessee in 1925 and in Pennsylvania in 2005; (2) Because it is from Karl Marx, it will automatically be rejected, along with the words to follow, by those who judge a statement not by its content but by its source. That is precisely the argument between Darwinism and creationism. Stanley Kramer’s “Inherit the Wind” (1960) is a movie about a courtroom battle between those who believe the Bible is literally true and those who believe, as the Spencer Tracy character puts it, that “an idea is a greater monument than a cathedral.”

Strange, that 46 years after it was made and 81 years after the Scopes trial, it is “Inherit the Wind” among all of Kramer’s films that seems most relevant and still generates controversy. – Roger Ebert

People Over The World
Reach Out your hand
And touch each other
People Over The World
We are the same
just different colors
We have one life to live
So much to give and so much to share
There is love to be found
Just look around
There’s happiness there
People over the world
Love without chains
Like sisters and brothers
Face each day with a smile
And in a while sunshine appears
You’ll feel warm deep inside
No need to hide, from danger and fear
People Over The World
Reach Out your hand
And touch each other
People Over The World
We are the same
just different colors
We have one life to live
So much to give and so much to share
There is love to be found
Just look around
There’s happiness there
People reach out you hand.
Reach out your hand

Civil War – Guns N Roses

Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they’ve always done before

Look at the hate we’re breeding
Look at the fear we’re feeding
Look at the lives we’re leading
The way we’ve always done before

My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can’t deny
And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars

D’you wear a black armband
When they shot the man
Who said “peace could last forever”
And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy
I went numb when I learned to see
So I never fell for Vietnam
We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
That you can’t trust freedom
When it’s not in your hands
When everybody’s fightin’
For their promised land
And

I don’t need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin’ soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain’t that fresh
I don’t need your civil war
Ow, oh no, no, no, no, no

Look at the shoes you’re filling
Look at the blood we’re spilling
Look at the world we’re killing
The way we’ve always done before
Look in the doubt we’ve wallowed
Look at the leaders we’ve followed
Look at the lies we’ve swallowed
And I don’t want to hear no more

My hands are tied
For all I’ve seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
‘Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars

I don’t need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin’ soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain’t that fresh
I don’t need your civil war
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I don’t need your civil war
I don’t need your civil war
Your power hungry sellin’ soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain’t that fresh
I don’t need your civil war
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
I don’t need one more war

I don’t need one more war
No, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
Whaz so civil ’bout war anyway?

Evergreen Tree

Oh darling, will our love be like an evergreen tree.
Stay evergreen and young as the seasons go.
Your kisses could make love grow like an evergreen tree.
Bloom in the summer’s sun and the winter’s snow.
On every branch will blossom,
Dreams for me and you.
Our tree of love will stay evergreen,
If our hearts stay ever true.

Oh darling, I love you so, don’t you know that I’ll be,
True ’til the leaves turn blue on the evergreen tree.

On every branch will blossom,
Dreams for me and you.
Our tree of love will stay evergreen,
If our hearts stay ever true.

Oh darling, I love you so, don’t you know that I’ll be.
True ’til the leaves turn blue on the evergreen tree.
On the evergreen tree.
On the evergreen tree.

Man in Black – Johnny Cash

Artist: Johnny Cash
source: azlyrics.com

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there’s a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he’s a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you’d think He’s talking straight to you and me.

Well, we’re doin’ mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin’ cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we’re reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought ‘a be a Man In Black.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin’ for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believin’ that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believin’ that we all were on their side.

Well, there’s things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin’ everywhere you go,
But ’til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You’ll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything’s OK,
But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
‘Till things are brighter, I’m the Man In Black

The Ballad of Ira Hayes – Johnny Cash

wiki: The Ballad of Ira Hayes
youtube: Kris Kristofferson on a tribute remake of Bitter Tears (Johnny Cash), released in 2014

Ira Hayes,
Ira Hayes

[CHORUS:]
Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won’t answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin’ Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Gather round me people there’s a story I would tell
About a brave young Indian you should remember well
From the land of the Pima Indian
A proud and noble band
Who farmed the Phoenix valley in Arizona land

Down the ditches for a thousand years
The water grew Ira’s peoples’ crops
‘Till the white man stole the water rights
And the sparklin’ water stopped

Now Ira’s folks were hungry
And their land grew crops of weeds
When war came, Ira volunteered
And forgot the white man’s greed

[CHORUS:]
Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won’t answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin’ Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

There they battled up Iwo Jima’s hill,
Two hundred and fifty men
But only twenty-seven lived to walk back down again

And when the fight was over
And when Old Glory raised
Among the men who held it high
Was the Indian, Ira Hayes

[CHORUS:]
Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won’t answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin’ Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Ira returned a hero
Celebrated through the land
He was wined and speeched and honored; Everybody shook his hand

But he was just a Pima Indian
No water, no crops, no chance
At home nobody cared what Ira’d done
And when did the Indians dance

[CHORUS:]
Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won’t answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin’ Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Then Ira started drinkin’ hard;
Jail was often his home
They’d let him raise the flag and lower it
like you’d throw a dog a bone!

He died drunk one mornin’
Alone in the land he fought to save
Two inches of water in a lonely ditch
Was a grave for Ira Hayes

[CHORUS:]
Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won’t answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin’ Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Yeah, call him drunken Ira Hayes
But his land is just as dry
And his ghost is lyin’ thirsty
In the ditch where Ira died
